Emotional Abuse Test — should you take it?

Please note: verbal abuse, mental abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and financial abuse are types of emotional abuse.

Does your partner insist he or she is always right and you are always wrong?

Do you have the feeling that your partner wants you to admit that he or she is superior to you?

Do you tiptoe around your partner for fear of triggering an angry outburst?

Does your partner withhold material items or affection?

Is your partner often grumpy or irritable?

Does your partner threaten you?

Is your partner selfish and uncooperative?

Do you and your partner often get into verbal arguments?

Do you feel unloved or misunderstood by your partner?

If you answer "yes" to a few of these questions, the relationship you are in may be abusive. You need to learn more to find out the truth — are you in an abusive relationship or not?

Not every selfish, unloving, or angry partner is an abuser

Some partners, although very unpleasant to be around, simply lack the skills to control their anger and behave with kindness, sensitivity, and friendship, but are not abusers.

Emotional abusers are not only selfish, unloving, and angry, they ALSO seek to control their partner.

Abusers want to dominate, make all the decisions, and direct every aspect of their partner's life.

Knowing the truth about your relationship — if it is abusive or not — is necessary so you can take practical steps to improve your relationship, protect yourself, and protect other family members.

If you are in an emotionally abusive relationship, then you need to find an effective way to stop the abuse!

Abuse will injure you

Individuals who live in an emotionally abusive relationship,  which includes verbal abuse, mental abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and financial abuse, suffer from lowered self-esteem, humiliation, and fear — and this is no way to live!

As well, there is always the real possibility that an emotionally abusive relationship can turn violent, and someone may be injured or get arrested.

A non-abusive, unpleasant partner can be helped by learning what is a healthy relationship. Such a partner has no interest in controlling you. He or she selfishly wants to get his or her way. And yes, this is 'wrong' — but it is NOT abuse!

On the other hand, an emotional abuser needs in addition to 'relationship skill-building,' they also require 'character building.'

The abuser needs to learn how to respect his or her partner and acknowledge that each family member has human rights and deserves to be treated with respect, fairness, and dignity.

An abuser wants to hurt his or her partner!

Most people do not want to hurt others. They do not want to verbally abuse, mentally abuse, psychologically abuse, sexually abuse, and financially abuse.

And should they unintentionally do so, they are remorseful and apologetic.

None of this is true regarding an abuser.

An abuser will hurt you and truly believe that he or she has done the right thing! 

Your abuser's justification for hurting you is what makes him or her so dangerous!

In the abuser's mind he or she is:

  • Smarter than you (more educated, more religious, etc.)
  • Stronger than you (emotionally or physically)
  • More privileged than you (has more money, comes from a better family, has a better job, etc.)
  • More aggressive than you and thus has the right to control you ("might-makes-right")
  • If your abuser is a man, he may have gender-based rights (mistakenly thinking society or religion gives him these entitlements)

The abuser uses these 'false arguments' to justify his or her actions that hurt and control you.

In your abuser's twisted mind, he or she may even believe the pain inflicted upon you is 'good for you' — that it makes you a better person.

Act now to stop the abuse

No one should agree to live in an abusive relationship.  

If you are in an abusive relationship, you need to reclaim your human right to be treated with dignity, respect, and equality.
